Steel Stair Installation

A few photos of the steel stair installation...The whole process was completed in just a few hours. After the hardwood floors are installed, Bill Curran & his crew will return to install the steel railings. The final step is to clean the steel by hand (an eco-friendly cleaning agent like SimpleGreen was recommended) and to apply a coat of beeswax to give the metal a slight sheen and more finished look. The wood treads in the images are temporary 2x4s- the final ones will be fabricated from reclaimed oak beams and will be about 3" thick. We are extremely pleased with how the stair turned out and will post additional images after the railings and final treads are installed. enjoy!

Check out this video....these guys make it look so easy.
